Cast Ladle Bottom Solutions
Vesuvius can customize a cast ladle bottom solution to suit any process requirement.
Engineered materials are matched with the optimal ladle bottom design solution to provide the best fit for any ladle process operation.
Benefits of ELBY* ladle bottom system
- Maximize ladle yield → achieve outstanding cost savings
- Minimize ladle slag carryover → obtain improved quality and yield
ELBY*: Customised precast ladle bottom systems that incorporate specifically designed channels, terraces and impact zones to alter the phenomenon of vortexing during the ladle draining sequence.
ELBY* utilizes NUMAX* refractory technology which maximizes wear resistance in the impact zone and channels to maintain the profile of the yield enhancing geometry.
ELBY* is designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) which simulates the drainage phenomenon that occurs in individual ladle to custom design the ELBY* system.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Measurement system has been developed to be used with ELBY* to monitor the amount of steel exiting the ladle.
